Yay It's Christmas!! Well, maybe not there yet, but here it is Christmas morning. Also if you wake up around "5:30 a.m. on Dec. 25th, steal a glance out the window on your way to the tree. The crescent moon will be gliding by the bright star Spica--a pretty close encounter. In some places the moon will actually blot out the star. Check http://spaceweather.com for sky maps and more information." Merry Christmas!!
